MLS – Houston Dynamo v Toronto FC Preview (21/4/18)

Match Preview

This is a really hard match to make estimations on because Toronto FC are likely to rest their entire first XI. They have a massive upcoming NACL final second leg in Mexico midweek, in which they are trailing 1-2. TFC desperately wanted this fixture to be postponed, but MLS denied their request. Almost as a sort of protest now, they are likely to field near enough a 2nd XI. Of course, this doesn’t mean they are guaranteed to get hammered. Many young and hungry players will be eager to make their mark and there's a chance Houston could relax too much. Rather than take the home team on a -1.25 handicap I think over 3 is a better bet. Houston matches are often frantic and you’d think TFC will have a go here considering they have other things on their mind.

Prediction: 3-1

Recommended bet 1 unit: Over 3 goals @2.08
